4.                  Consignment ~ DS ~ WWII Stone Knuckle Knife.  Unique with emerald green eyes.  6 ½” blade appears to be theater made as it doesn’t look like any production blade that I can identify.  Blade has plenty of scratches but no rust or pitting and is very sharp.  Heavy harness leather period scabbard appears to be waxed with supple and solid leather, no cracking and snap strap functions.  GI belt hanger.  This scabbard was obviously made for and carried with this knife.  NOTE:  NO PAYPAL ON THIS ITEM.

83.  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades really are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
